Intensive cyanide Leach Hydrometallurgy Leaching in
If there is more than 24 hours of intensive leaching time, then perhaps the leaching conditions need to be optimised e.g. higher DO, more cyanide, etc. or perhaps a regrind before intensive leaching (coarse gold would be flattened (greater surface area), while the surfaces of composited gold (e.g. between pyrite crystals) would be made more accessible, allowing faster dissolution).
